Meet Bruno. A Mexican immigrant to the U.S., he loves rock climbing and pushing himself to be the best he can be. One rainy afternoon we caught up with Bruno on the way to a climb. We talked about who has control of our lives and the motivation that drives him to be a good climber and a good person.
Have you ever been in a situation where you need to trust someone else with everything?
Bruno also talks about how he had a hard time giving up some of the things he used to do — things that he knew were wrong but didn’t want to let go of them. Have you ever felt that way? It can be hard to let go. Watch Bruno’s story and see what he has to say about that choice and how he would change things if he could go back and do it over again.
Multiple reports of changed lives indicate that Jesus Christ is in fact raised from the dead. Each report testifies in some manner that He is the God of active love, personally concerned and ready to show himself to you or someone you know. The stories told here tell of freedom from the guilt of sin and affect both current life and what happens at death.
